Toledo & Olive Oil Exclusive Day Tour

Day trip to Toledo and an Olive grove

Spain is the World’s olive grove and very close to the Imperial CityToledo, only one hour from Madrid, we find some of the best extra virgin olive oils. Internationally awarded, organic farming is their common principle in a landscape surrounded by vineyards and cereals. Several varieties are cultivated, being cornicabra, picual, arbequina and manzanilla the main actors. This is a unique opportunity to walk through 100 years old olive trees and learn every detail of the EVOO production process and all tips about how to buy it and how to keep it. Does the color matter? What information on the label should I pay attention to? What does the acidity mean? Meanwhile this article might help you.

For lunch you’ll head to Toledo, the ancient capital of Spain – until 1563 –  that was declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986. Toledo’s gastronomy reflects this cross of cultures and a good number of dishes combine Moorish and Christian influences: lamb roast or stew, cochifrito (fried pork), alubias con perdiz (beans with partridge) and perdiz estofoda (partridge stew), carcamusa, migas, gachas manchegas, and tortilla a la magra. Marzipan and Manchego cheeses hold a protected appellation and you shouldn’t leave Toledo without tasting them.

Also known as the City of Three Cultures for having been influenced by a historical co-existence of Christians, Muslims and Jews, a walking tour in Toledo among its huge haul of churches and convents, mosques and synagogues, will delight you.
